sorry...what was your question again? j/k

In person, I'm somewhat different than on here in the sense of when meeting people in person, I tend to be more polite than when I first meet people here. why is that? I don't know.

saying sorry and politeness when training is the same...if it's someone I don't know very well, I say sorry and kindof expect them to do the same.
After you get to know someone better, you know that the sorry is implied and no longer need to verbalize it.

Ed,
once when I first started training in karate, we went to Charlotte,NC to train with a school who "punched past" their partner's heads (up to the elbow) when training. After about three classes with them, we went back to our school and the first technique I tried, I punched my instructor right dead between the eyes, because we punched "to the target", not beside it. "Sorry" never entered my mind... but I sure could have used an extra door to the place... I think it was more "OS"...

That is true, Ed. My comments were in regards to people with whom I had been training with for a while. I would probably say sorry if it were a relatively new training partner.

I think that saying sorry depends on the type of sparring you're doing, the level of the person you're training with and how well you know the person. If you're meant to be doing non contact sparring and you whack someone then checking if they're ok is fine. I will sometimes say sorry out of habit from the "real world" ie hurt someone, say sorry, although we've been trying to get out of that habit at training for all the reasons that have already been posted.

If it's contact sparring then a quick are you ok? is fine and then get on with it. If I'm sparring with someone I know well and of a similar rank to me then we tend to go pretty hard and if you land a good technique generally the person who gets hit usually says "nice shot" and keeps going. If i cop a punch to the face I'm usually more p..sed with myself for dropping my hands rather than worrying about someone saying sorry.
Also as someone else mentioned, if it's someone you know well and train with a lot then sorries are usually unneccesary but if it's someone new, I kind of feel it's polite to say sorry in that situation.
